Parliament Attack: Two Men Charged With Criminal Trespass, Malicious Damage

The two members of the Red Top Brigade Movement who attacked Parliament yesterday evening face charges of criminal trespass and malicious damage.  They are Charles Mutaasa Kakero and Dafala Senjako.

Trouble for the duo started when they jumped on the floor of parliament from the stranger’s gallery around 4pm protesting corruption. 

They dropped leaflets titled “A letter to Africa and Uganda, stop cropping out citizens,” in which they protest against President, Yoweri Museveni’s regime and Corruption.   

The two were subdued and arrested by security for questioning. Now, salt radio has since established that the suspects have been transferred to the Central Police Station Kampala where they are locked up on charges of criminal trespass and malicious damage.  

A source in the office of Criminal investigation Department of police at Parliament Police, says they looking for appropriate sections in Parliament’s Powers and privileges Act to prosecute the duo. He however, says the charges are not yet definite as the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) will come out with the final charges.

The Internal Affairs State Minister, Mario Obiga Kania, says investigations are still ongoing to establish the extent of the acts of the two people.
